The staff was very nice and full of helpful information about where to go in Hualien city. The only thing I would do is try to have more information on the wall about how to get to Taroko Gorge.
At the moment, Colorful Taiwan are renovating and making the facilities bigger. They will be done before Chinese New Year. Even though all of that has been going on, the actual stay was amazing and friendly and caring. The staff and owners are wonderful. Extremely helpful and very knowledgable about the surrounding area and always willing to go the extra mile to help you and find out where something is. The rooms are very nice, the beds are very comfortable and there are no worries about safety.
Great host, good location, would recommend this hostel
A good hostel, felt like a home, with helpful and very pleasant staff. It's very clean and was a good place to relax after a few days of hiking. Location is great for the train for day trips out of Hualien, if using the bus it's a 20 minute walk (use the train). Though away from the centre (like all of the hostels in sprawling Hualien) there are good local shops and eateries nearby, plus it's not too far from Ziqang Night Market. I enjoyed my stay.
Clean facilities, friendly staff, location close to the station...That's what it takes to make a hostel a good (if not perfect) hostel. And Colorful Taiwan has all that!
